The accountsThe accounts

In an Accounts Database it is possible to manage X accounts. The accounts are independent from each other but it is possible to define money transfers between them (see transaction properties)

when you first start the programme you have to create at least one account.

Accounts list

The menu name (in inversed colours) is the name of the open account database.

   The drop down list at top right ("All" in the image ("tout" in the beta)) allows the user to define which accounts should be taken into account for the sum type (at bottom right).
   The drop down list allows the way in which the different account totals are added up:
-   All (Tout in beta) adds all the account totals (default mode);
-   Selected only adds up the selected accounts totals (shown in reversed colour);
-   Not select. only adds up the totals of the UNselected accounts.
To change the sum (at bottom right) select and deselect the lines with a simple tap on the displayed totals.
   New allows the user to create a new account in the database.:-)
   The list at bottom middle ("All" in the image) allows the user to access to various views of the sum (at bottom right) (see the sum type) chapter.

A short tap on the account name allows the user to access the transaction list

A tap and hold on the account name allows the user to obtain a contextual menu of the account properties with the delete button

Tap on the triangle (in inversed colours) at the start of the line to open a menu from which the user can:

   change account within the database.
The arrows at the end of each database line allow to access to a sub-menu to directly select an account of the database.
   open the current database properties, thanks to the next to last menu line.
   go up a level into the database list thanks to Manage accounts DBases... line.

This small menu is only available in the accounts list screen. It allows to open the database properties and to go to the databases list screen.

Account properties

   Name, that's pretty obvious... :-)
The checkbox allow to flag or unflag (see flagging) the first line of the transactions list screen.

   Account currency
   Initial balance allows a value (positive or negative) to be fixed for the account before any transactions are entered.
This value appears at the top of the transactions list.
   Statement # management allows to associate a statement number to each transaction.
To learn more about that, see Mannage statement numbers.
   Warn if overdrawn, thresholds: of this option is ticked then an alert message will be produced if the account balance is below the "Overdrawn" value.
-   Overdrawn allows the user to define a value (positive or negative) at which the account is considered overdrawn. If the account balance falls below this value an alert message will be produced at each start or account change.
-   No longer over. allows the user to define a value (positive or negative) at which the account is no longer considered overdrawn (alert messages are stopped).

   Keep last typed date permits to set the new transaction date to the last typed one instead of the day one.
Useful when you create several transactions at a time, at the end of each month for example.

   ?? cheques per cheque book, what more needs to be said? :-)
   Current cheque books: n°1, 2, 3 and 4 the four fields allow the user to define 4 cheque books for each account and are inserted into the "#" ´field of the transaction properties. When you edit/create a transaction, if you type an unknown cheque number (which is not part of any referenced cheque book), Ma Tirelire will propose you to add a new cheque book with this number as the first cheque number. This cheque book is added at the end of the list.
When 4 cheque books are defined, the new cheque book is added to the #4 position, the old cheque books #4, #3 and #2 become respectively #3, #2, #1 and the old #1 is deleted.

   #: allows the account number to be noted
This field may also be used for notes if you want.
   Notes : a field where your imagination can run wild...:-)

   Delete allows the user to completely destroy the account and all the associated transactions.
The Delete button only appears if you enter the menu via the account list window.
In deleting an account you will delete all of the transactions associated with it...
